Hey there is a new game in town.
“New” - what is it, about new that attracts people?
Doesn’t new sometimes mean not proven yet, experimental, no track record?
Before I spin off on a tangent (remember your geometry?), let’s get back to this blogland game. Actually, it might not be completely new since songs have been rated, listed, awarded and tracked since record companies started selling them.
Over at The Original Bean (she is only bean I know so it’s all original to me), Jene, has offered up a weekly blog game/challenge. (tangentially speaking do you think game and challenge are really the same thing?)
This week, players have been asked to share their favorite song. Notice that I wrote song not songs. No plural here. Also, this week is just favorite song, not favorite ballad, not favorite love song, not favorite dance song, not favorite kick-ass rock song, not favorite your-girl-left-you-for-Jesus song. Well you get the challenge part of this - don’t you?
A handful of songs start quickly popping up in my head. Good thing I keep them inside my head because I can’t sing.
- “Over the Rainbow” - dreaming inspiration mood
- “On Eagle’s Wings” - spiritual and reminds me of my mother
- “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” - great lyrics and memories of night moves in a parked car with a baseball analogy
But, Sister Christian, the more I think about it the more songs I have competing for favorite. So hard to pick one because it's Easier Said Than Done, but I’m going to do it.
My favorite song - “White Rabbit” written by Grace Slick.
I could try to explain why “White Rabbit” is my favorite but do you really care why? Sometimes a song combines lyrics and beat in a way that resonates in your memories.
Remember what the Dormouse said, “Feed your head and read a blog.”
